      BBC saying Spurs won't have Son, Moura and Emerson

      Bit of a joke at this stage, will be surprised if this one goes ahead (and if we're without Hendo/Mo)
      Then again, it's Sunday TV, and $$$ talks, so who knows...

      People are saying clubs should be published for not having their players jabbed?
      Liverpool currently have four? Five maybe with covid. We are fully jabbed and still nearly missing half a team.

      Stop testing. Start playing again.

      As for the game tomorrow, I think we should win. Scrappy though. 2-1.

      Exactly right. This whole pandemic is a f**king sham. All players should be isolating in a bubble as you say. It's not exactly Quantum Physics but then again this is the FA!

      A sham ? How ?

      Yep.


      Assume that some people don't understand that the vaccine does not stop many people from contracting covid, the vaccine's main effect is in lessening the severity with which the disease strikes.

      Since that is the case, then what are we trying to accomplish by continuing to focus and cancel games because of cases?

      The element that could be tough about tomorrow is that as far as I can see the Spurs players have had a lovely little two week relaxation break.

      Should be suitably refreshed and ready to go - meanwhile we were out there Thursday night playing football.

      Let's hope Liverpool coincide our two weeks covid break for the African Cup of Nations.

      Exactly. There was an article today where the premier league updated the games being cancelled and then how players should get boostered (implying that would solve the issue) but when you read it all the reasons for booster were not to save the fixture but to protect loved ones and team mates etc....

      They should def be rusty since they had a large number of players out which meant htey couldn't train together either.

      If they hasn’t identified who had Covid how many players do you think would have ended up with it

      By isolating the players you reduce the risk of the virus affecting the whole squad

      But if many of them had covid, as they claim, maybe they'll not be fully fit after that, even if they had light enough symptoms ?!
      Also reports are that they will be missing some of their key players, though not sure how reliable that is.

      Would expect Conte will try make them harder to break down than they were pre his arrival.

      Hard to know/predict though, will wait till see both teamsheets after the game has been confirmed as going ahead...

      So? I don’t care how many players may have been prevented from catching it.
      But if a club with 100% fully jabbed players can’t play a game of football because of a outbreak of covid cases then does it matter FROM A FOOTBALLING POINT OF VIEW how many players are jabbed?
      The answer is no. Sure they are protecting loved ones and saving the nhs blah blah but football will continue to struggle to fulfil its fixtures when this virus is going nowhere fast.

      Yes, because it reduces the likelihood of spread, and testing helps isolate cases quickly.
      So instead of large numbers getting it, the number is reduced and a team can be fielded.

      Not ideal though, missing even some players, and having matches go ahead, will grant you that.

      Yeah: I get that. Personally I would say now that if you have squad of 25, you should have to fulfil your fixture unless you can’t pick 11.

      If we have a population that is 100% vaccinated as is the case with the team and we still cannot resume life as before, then not sure when we ever will.

      I would dock points from any club that has failed to vaccinate the vast majority of their squad. At this stage of the season to learn that there are so many unvaccinated is appalling.

      Just plays into the old stereotype that footballers are thick.

      Yep, enormous truth in this ... really is astonishing that the clubs own insurance allows it to be honest - if any of them were to get long covid it would be the same as a serious leg break potentially

      Virgil was saying they take a test in the morning when arriving and sit in the Car for 30 mins whilst they await the test. These lads are like brothers so they will be upset to see some of them test positive and i wonder if this did play out a bit against Newcastle the concentration in the first half was poor and so much better in the second half.
      I think they will be ok tomorrow against a much more challenging team I have a good feeling about the game.......as long as it goes ahead
